New Beer Blog Rochester Mills 12 Days Of Milkshake Stout (2015)

Rochester Mills now has 11 distribution deals in Michigan, close to ...

In this special beer blog, we are going to get into a holiday tradition around the Michigan area with Rochester Mills Beer Company.  It is their 12 Days Of Milkshake Stout.  They are making 12 different versions of their milk stout.  They are using the play on words of 12 Days Of Christmas.  They have been doing this for 2 years now and I know many people are looking forward to it.  I know I was introduced to it when visiting Ashley’s in Westland last year.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into these stouts.


This year the start date was December 9th and went to the 20th.  Each day, the bar or restaurant will tap one beer a day.  For example, the photo shows us what the stouts that will be feature in this year’s 12 Days Of Milkshake Stout.  It will go in order so the first one is Chocolate Cheesecake.  I do not take any tasting notes so I will do my best on these beers. Here is the order of how I liked them.  Here is my ranking:

  1. Cinnamon Roll
  2. Chocolate Cheesecake
  3. Blueberry Pancake
  4. German Chocolate Cake
  5. Bourbon Barrel Aged
  6. Imperial
  7. Toasted Marshmallow
  8. Chunky Money
  9. Christmas Toffee
  10. Peach Cobbler
  11. Creme de Menthe
  12. Vanilla Mocha

I am not saying that the ones at the bottom are bad beers.  They are great but I liked Cinnamon Roll over than the Vanilla Mocha.  I know from last year they brought back only six and put six new ones in this year’s 12 Days.  They have everything going on that would make just about everyone happy.

Here is their website and twitter addresses:

Closing, since moving back from Chicago, I have been always looking for this beer event.  I love my stouts and this is the best milk stout on the market.  They took their milk stout and did different version of this great beer.  They keep the six favorites and change the other six.  It is not the same stouts each year.  I believe that what this beer event special.  Rochester Mills Brewery out did themselves this year.  I highly recommend all these beers.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it! \m/
